Spicy Rice Casserole Recipe

Stirring up pork sausage, wild rice and jalapeno to taste makes this a terrific side. Or serve it with corn bread to turn it into a main dish. It’s easy to make ahead and reheat in a microwave for a potluck meal. —Debbie Jones, California, Maryland

"My kids love this "spicy rice", and ask for it by name! I have used long-grain white rice, and adjusted the cooking time to 15 minutes. It comes out fine with ground beef, too, but the sausage is really fantastic. Kind of like a deconstructed stuffed pepper recipe, easily adaptable, and a keeper!"
